What Happens In Our Classes
This is a time to learn, think, create and enjoy the process. Each class focuses on a specific topic and information provided by way of images and discussion. Then, the information is synthesized and a solution to a specific design challenge is created by the student. Some of the areas of exploration that are covered during these class sessions are:
How we live: Adjacency of different building types, relationship of human activities to the organizations of towns and cities, circulation patterns and an increased awareness of our built environment.
Cultural values: What is important in different cultures and how it is expressed in built form.
History: How our building types have developed over the centuries and why.
City planning: We will look at layouts of different cities around the world and use those ideas for designing a new town.
Confidence in ideas: Sometimes we lose confidence in ourselves and our ideas. In this class, everyone’s ideas have merit and creativity is encouraged.
